What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is the form of treatment where small, single-use, disposable needles are inserted into regions of the body to release pressure from muscle knots and trigger points. It varies greatly from Acupuncture, as it is more of a concentrated treatment to the affected area, whereas Acupuncture treats more of the body as a whole.
Dry Needling is a much shorter treatment as well, as the purpose is to activate the muscles via an in-and-out technique. We treat shoulder, gluteal/piriformis, elbow (tennis elbow or golfer's elbow), lower back, neck, midback, knee and other areas by inserting the needles to each affected region manually moving the needle in and out for approximately 30 seconds.
